Underperforming Schools Turnaround (SB 448)
State General Fund of $2.5 million in each fiscal year to assist in turning around persistently underperforming schools. Currently, the only funding for such schools is provided by the federal government. These funds will be used for vendor contracts, performance management assessment, staff incentives, and other services targeting student achievement in the lowest performing schools. The funds will provide a path to success before takeover of these schools (and placement in the proposed Achievement District) becomes necessary.
